SAN DIEGO -- The Padres Clayton Richard is a different pitcher in this go round in San Diego.Richard proved that by blanking Colorado for seven innings as San Diego routed the Rockies, 14-1 on Thursday night.I think Im smarter and Im taking things easier, Richard said. I have an understanding that on the mound doing less is more. It creates better stuff and more consistency.After two earlier stints with the Padres, Richard was claimed off waivers when released by the Chicago Cubs on Aug. 3. It was his second impressive start since Aug. 27, when he blanked the Miami Marlins over seven innings in a win.Richard missed the 2014 season after undergoing a left shoulder operation. Hes bounced around since, but it appears hes bounced all the way back.You bet on the person and what he has done in the past, Padres manager Andy Green said. As he gets distance from his surgery hes returning to form. Hes one of those guys that works harder than everybody and Ive learned not to count those types of people out.Richard (2-3) was sharp as he scattered six hits, walked two and had eight strikeouts.I think consistently it was about being down in the zone and throwing strikes,Hes doing so with a different arm slot, dropping down more three-quarter on his release.Instead of staying up top Ive kind of let the arm goes where it wants to, Richard said. Im just relaxed and not worrying about getting on top on the ball.Ryan Schimpf hit a three-run homer and tied a career-high with four RBI to lead the offensive outburst.Schimpf, a rookie second baseman, hit his 18th home run of the season, all coming since July 1.Keith Hessler and Brandon Morrow pitched the final two innings. Cristhian Adames spoiled the shutout with a one-out homer in the ninth off Morrow.Every position player in the Padres starting lineup had a hit. Travis Jankowski, Yangervis Solarte, Alex Dickerson and Schimpf had two each. Derek Norris added a two-run homer in the eighth.Jeff Hoffman (0-3) lasted 2 2/3 innings but it was hardly all by his own doing. He gave up seven unearned runs, six hits and two walks. It was his shortest stint in his four career starts.`I think its just a matter of command and getting in tough counts, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said.San Diego tacked on three runs in the fifth on Richards RBI groundout after German Marquez walked the bases loaded in his major league debut. Jankowski added a two-run single.The Padres dinged Hoffman with a seven-run third, highlighted by Schimpfs three-run blast. It tied a season-high for runs in an inning for the Padres after they sent 11 batters to the plate.San Diego had a little help from Adames as all the runs were unearned.With Luis Sardinas at third, Jon Jays two-out grounder kicked off Adames glove at shortstop for a run-scoring error. Wil Myers, Solarte and Dickerson followed with singles, with the last two bringing in runs.The error didnt mean anything, Hoffman said. That stuff happens. You just gotta go out and make the next pitch and get out of it.Then Schimpf went deep over the fence in center field. Sardinas got on for the second time in the inning with an RBI single for a 7-0 lead.Green said Norris was to undergo an X-ray after taking a foul tip off his right shoulder in the ninth inning.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: Reinstated RHP Jason Motte from the DL. Motte has been out since July 26 with a strained right rotator cuff.Padres: RHP Jarred Cosart could miss his next start after straining his right groin and hamstring when leaping for an errant throw on Wednesday.UP NEXTRockies: RHP Tyler Chatwood (10-9, 3.94) is 6-1 on the road, with a 1.82 ERA which leads the majors. Hes 2-0 with a 1.84 ERA in two starts against the Padres this year.Padres: RHP Luis Perdomo (7-8, 5.92) has given up three earned runs or less in 10 of his last 14 starts. Two of the wins have come against the Rockies, one in relief. http://www.49ersrookiestore.com/49ers-Ya-Tittle-Jersey/ . -- An ugly goal by Nick Bonino helped the Anaheim Ducks overcome the defensive-minded Phoenix Coyotes on a night when their ragged power play continued to struggle. http://www.49ersrookiestore.com/49ers-Tank-Carradine-Jersey/ .

PRISTINA, Kosovo -- Footballs newest country is hoping to be the surprise package of the World Cup qualifiers, just a few months after gaining FIFA membership.Kosovo became a UEFA member in May, joined FIFA a week later and was fast-tracked into 2018 World Cup qualifying.It earned a credible 1-1 draw in Finland last month in its competitive international debut and is looking to spring more surprises against Croatia and Ukraine, even if coach Albert Bunjaki believes the European Championship in 2020 is a more realistic target.Kosovo plays Croatia on Thursday in Albanias northern city of Shkodra as it has no stadium certified by UEFA. It also plays on neutral territory three days later, with its away match against Ukraine being held in Poland as its opponent does not recognize Kosovo as an independent state.It will be a hard game, Kosovo coach Albert Bunjaki said in an interview with The Associated Press on Monday. We know that Croatia is a good team and after three days well play against Ukraine. But at the same time you know in football you can surprise.Weve started the qualification. Our goal is 2020. At the same time of course we will try to do the best in every game, so the next one is the Croatian national team. We will get the answer after the game. We will try to surprise them as we can.It was a far from easy match against Finland. Kickoff was less than five hours away when the sportss governing body finally allowed six players who had represented other countries to switch their allegiance to Kosovo now the former province of Serbia is recognized as a football nation.dddddddddddd.Valon Berishas case was the last to be resolved and the former Norway international converted the penalty which secured Kosovo a point in Group I, putting it level with the other teams after both Croatia-Turkey and Ukraine-Iceland also ended 1-1.Its going to be hard for us because we just started up with this national team, Berisha said. We are a lot of new young players who dont know each other very well. I think it will take time until we form a really good group.We made a good first impression I think and we could have won the game against Finland. But now we are up against two really good international teams. It will be hard for us but we can surprise them because they might take us a little bit easy and it might go against them.Defender Leart Paqarada also believes Kosovo has the right mix of talented individuals to spring a surprise.Our team spirit is very well and we are well prepared for the game, he said. We have individual quality in the team and thats why I think maybe we can surprise somebody.---Llazar Semini in Tirana, Albania contributed to this report.
